The perfect interview outfit

The perfect interview outfit

#dontsweatit Fashion

We all know that when it comes to job interviews, first impressions really matter. If you’re anything like us, just the thought of sorting the perfect outfit will instantly send you into cold sweats! #dontsweatit Soft and Gentle fans we have an outfit that even Lord Alan Sugar would appreciate.

Don’t let your jewelry outshine you!

Take the stress out of your meeting by dressing with confidence and paying attention to the details. You want your interviewer to be focused on you and what you are saying, so don’t go overboard with jewelry. You want to be more Karren Brady than Pat Butcher.


Dress to impress

Turtlenecks are back in this winter and crisp white just screams sophistication. Alternatively, go for a high-neck buttoned shirt with interesting embroidery, perfect for adding subtle detail. Why not team both of these options with a fitted midi skirt or tailored-trousers for a classic look, or choose a patterned alternative for a pop of colour.

Don’t forget to put a bit of personality into your outfit, being true to yourself and feeling comfortable will help calm those nerves.

Step up

If you want to be practical and keep your cool, chose a pair of sturdy yet stylish flats, especially if killer heels aren’t your cup of tea in the boardroom! Loafers are this season’s huge trend, as well as looking smart and serious, they are also super comfy to boot. Our top tip is to make sure you wear in any new shoes to avoid those nasty blisters!

Make a statement

You want to be remembered for all the right reasons so never let your accessories speak louder than you; keep it simple and try your hardest to pick just one statement piece, like a bright handbag or a bold red lipstick.

We love a statement handbag, not only does it looks good but it’s great for storing all your important prep notes, touch-up make-up and of course, a can of Soft and Gentle Orange Blossom & Grapefruit, to keep that energised spring in your step, 48 hours of protection and zero white marks!
